Van der woude syndrome: A rare case report with brief review of literature

Anne Van der Woude, in 1954, described a rare autosomal dominant developmental disorder with lower lip pits and cleft lip and palate called Van der Woude syndrome. It is one of the most common syndromic orofacial clefting and accounts for 2% of all cleft cases. We report a case of Van der Woude syndrome in a 6-year old girl with characteristic features of congenital lower lip pits, surgically repaired cleft lip and palate and hypodontia.
